Little Gift Bags

On Monday I shared some pincushions that I made.  The pink "cupcake" pincushion was made using fabric from a child's chenille jacket.  These gift bags were made using the sleeves from the same jacket...cuffs and all!

I added a couple bottle caps to the photos so you could see the size of the bags.  The perfect size for a tiny treasure.  Maybe something like the little pins & magnets I'm going to make with these bottle caps.

The silver flower is a brad with bling from my scrap booking stash and the daisies are an old vintage earring.  These bags were quick and seam each was all I needed to sew.  I wonder if I can find any other cute sleeves in the house!!

Wish I could come to your show. These treat totes are adorable. You make beautiful things Marie! I am swamped this week..I'll write soon.

The cuffs on the sleeves and the "bling" are the perfect addition to the little bags. Also a great idea using a necklace (I think it's a necklace) as the purse handle. Too cute.
